Online office and a deeper dive of 

Hello! My name is Elaina Simpson. I am a Christian Science Practitioner. Although my home is located in Maryland, Virginia is just beyond my backyard, and D.C. proper is two miles down the street. The patients Practitioners work with are from various places and countries, however.


There are many questions these days about how thought connects to our health and experience. People more than ever, are seeking reliable healing solutions. There are many questions about the thought-health connection. 

The idea for "Dove and Olive Leaf" started on instagram years ago when there were no CS-specific ideas on Instagram. I named it the biblical, "Dove and Olive Leaf" since I already had a personal account with my name. I've enjoyed sharing Christian Science with others in this way. 

This website is a deeper dive, an extension and a continuation of the Instagram account. I see it as an online office, where anyone can look around and learn about Christian Science. For helpful info on spirituality, healing & Christian Science, see Resources for Spiritual Study

I have felt so blessed with all I'm learning about Christian Science. I love to write for the Christian Science periodicals and love to share ideas here, too. 

A large part of my job is working with those interested in spirituality and healing. 

It's a joy to support others. Although there are various ways to reach me, the most efficient way to reach me initially is via email, using the contact form on the right side of this page. Most use the contact form, then set up a time for a call or an in-person visit, and patients can then text me when they need.

There are many CS Practitioners out there you can call on for help and here is the accredited list. 

Much love,


For your reference

*Now taking new patients*

If you are new to working with a Practitioner and hope to see if this is a good fit, I'd love to hear from you. Please mention that you'd like a "free consultation."
